Alabama governor signs law allowing church to have its own police force

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) signed a bill into law to allow a Presbyterian church to have its own police force.

The law approved during the most recent legislative session gives Briarwood Presbyterian Church and its private school on the same campus the ability to hire private police officers who can make arrests if crimes are committed on the property, according to The Associated Press.

Officials from the church say a private police force is necessary to adequately secure the church and school, which has 2,000 students and faculty on its campus.
